We just had a go at demand-led shortages and no-one I know died so let’s give supply-led shortages a go.

What's the view of 'no deal' in light of the Covid situation?

Surely there are going to be enough economic problems without adding insult to injury and making stuff dearer with no deal? ... or has nothing changed?

Come on guys, Brexit was a revolt for not being listened too and changing things through a vote.....it’s a little part of the plan to break the system!......

Well, odd to see that just about every EU country took back control of their borders about 2 months before the UK did, even though they couldn't, because they were in the EU.

Sorry to hear that scozza.

Unfortunately it's not corporate bull. .. it's the economic consequence that loads of business leaders said would be the case. Not unfounded scaremongering when the people who warned it would happen are the ones who will now make it happen to try and keep their business afloat. ..

Hopefully you'll find something. I hear boris is looking for 20000 coppers to replace the 20000 coppers that we lost over the last few years. maybe your missus could put a word in for you.

what a strange thing to say’ i don’t own patriotism or brexit. i am patriotic and have been most of life’ apart from a few times after disappointment. One disappointment recently was’ the old corrupt parliament’ that like flakey remainers held up brexit proceedings.
I voted brexit’ i don’t own it unfortunately.
as i posted earlier’ i mix with all types, and many say what they think. i’m a fan of people being able to state their opinions’ without the snow flakes jumping on them.

No need to worry, unlucky mate. Fromage can get you a start on a British trawler for sure. Boris could get you a start in a pork pie or kipper factory. Lizz Truss can surely get you a start in the Somerset cheese industry, maybe Spud picking in Norfolk. If you fancy Cornwall, plenty of money to be earned cleaning caravan's

Good old Brexit. The business I currently work for has announced its reviewing its European operations today and the cash conversion cost with England pulling out and the expected impact on the exchange rate it can not sustain its position. I love the corporate bull****. In summary that means we’re out of here soon, followed by a load of others too no doubt

****s. Not to worry we will be alright in around 10 or 15 years time when it’s all settled down

You don't "own" patriotism because of the way you voted in a binary referendum Mook. You just own the consequences. Unless you're peddling something more sinister?

Hi Ken
Not a troll at all , I just see things a lot different than others.
Like you I’ve watched , read , everything about conflicts, even more so WW1 and 2.
Everything is a total mess regarding the EU .
Our country has been invaded by stealth , the divisions are a gaping hole .
I just see history repeating itself over and over again .
I will go more in depth when I have a bit more time to clarify my assumptions .

I do talk to others who have a similar assumption as mine with even more drastic views than mine .
Nothing is going to get better only worse .
We have come no further as a species than caveman times and that’s worrying .

what i regularly display on here is my patriotism and belief in my country to hold their own’ not propped up by europe or anybody else. you trying to portray me in a way that is both racist and bigotry’ is because i have opposing views to you’ like many others that have posted here.
the reamainers lost’ stop being a bad loser and try and give it a chance’ just like me. brexit could make or break my businesses. the businesses are varied so it’s difficult to predict how they’ll fair. we had numerous debates about it’ some who knew i was a leaver strongly disagreed’ the majority though’ after a lot of thought it a good option.
none of us have a crystal ball’ i do have faith and passion though. i’m too old to see if things flourish for the country’ unless it happens really quickly. if i’m around to see it possibly fail’ i’ll take that on the chin too. i don’t know your age but i’m sure if you were around and aware of the country when we were independent’ you would have a lot more faith and belief in brexit.

you need to get used to racism and other culture differences though, it will never go away, in fact from what i’ve seen it’s getting worse. you don't have to agree with it or like’ just be aware it’s not going away.
If this country was full of al’l and only black people’ with a single culture and religion’ or only asian people with one religion and culture’ or only white people with a single religion and culture’ you will never here of racism in that country. maybe homophobia’ or semitism’ and sexist and ageist’ no racism though.
however past governments through all kinds of actions’ decided we would be multi racial and multi cultural.
unfortunately it hasn’t worked’ they know and we all know it but’ many are trying to stamp it out which i admire but’ can’t help thinking it’s a pointless exercise.
i meet people from all walks of life’ and the majority of them’ once theyfeel confident make many racist statements and comments. i mean people of poor upbringing a bit like me’ right up to the mega rich’ they all sing the same song.
i have been subject to racism too. one example was a few years ago we needed some big pots and steamers for a function. i was told about an indian wholesaler that would stock them. me and two colleagues
Visited the place’ the whole town and cash and carry were indians only. we were the only whites’ we walked in and were stared at like we were outlaws. we found the pots and pans, and asked somebody behind the counter the price. None of them were speaking english’ so we asked them to speak english. it got really nasty after that’ what are you people doing here’ theres nothing for your sort here’ in english, they told us we were the wrong colour. then they mumbled in their language. a woman came from the back and asked what we wanted’ i was tempted to just walk out but’ we needed the pots. she did us a deal and half apologised saying the men thought we were robbers.
Once we got out of there’ obviously relieved, a colleague said’ just imagine what would happen if a gang of white blokes treated three indians like that.
that’s one of a few examples’ if you want to start shouting about racism’ maybe look at it from all races. you don’t hear much of whites being racially abused’ as they laugh it off and don't make it a big deal. my staff have warned some foreign employees about spitting and blowing snot on the floor. often they threatened with the race card.
so do me a favour’ preach elsewhere.

i encourage my students to ask questions. then i encourage them to ask more and seek out as many viewpoints as possible. it's simple. that way they can widen their viewpoint rather than have them narrowed by propaganda. i challenge bigotry / racism / homophobia etc. as that's an important part of my job, but i never replace their viewpoint with mine.

as for you not agreeing with my views, then i'm relieved. given what you regularly display on here I'd be the one that was worried if i felt that we were aligned in our opinion....

tinhead - fair point. but i could still be on to something....

i find it quite worrying that you are a school teacher’ as you have plenty of time to influence innocent youngsters with your views’ most of which i’m sure i wouldn’t agree with. i bet you take on the roll as part teacher part politician’ giving your opinions as fact and correct.
as for my business’ i have very little to do with the running of them’ or hiring and firing. i do know the amount of money these racial conflicts cost the businesses though.
some take sick leave because of stress waiting for court dates, full pay and benefits obviously’ from the company kitty. then managers and supervisors are often called as witnesses. it’s problems like this that are not good for any business.

reading your post - and between the lines - something struck me in your comment

' i want to point out that i employ a lot of people at various companies. there is a big mix of race, culture and religion’ and it has generally not worked and caused many problems.'


Given your apparent attitude toward a mixed society, perhaps you should look at the common denominator in your statement. It's little surprise that it hasn't worked if you are the employer there...


Can I refer you to my earlier post - number 1141?

The last few years has shown me how many flakey peopl there are in the uk. since brexit a few days ago’ i have heard many saying racism will increase, and cultural conflicts will also get worse. i don’t know how true that is, none of us do’ but many will see the country making its own rules’ and controlling borders as racist’ and relevant to culture.
I don’t think racism will ever cease’ no matter what country we’re in’ and despite the government claiming we are multi cultural, which we might well be’ it clearly doesn’t work. We are not all meant to inter mingle and embrace each others culture and religion, and the majority of the time’ the majority of us does not and never will.
If we all came back on earth in 500 years time, if man hasn’t killed it by then’ there would be racism and culture conflict, as long as there are different cultures and races in a country, it will exist’ and the smalker the country’ the worse it becomes.

before i get labelled a racist or bigot again, i want to point out that i employ a lot of people at various companies. there is a big mix of race, culture and religion’ and it has generally not worked and caused many problems.
Some of the racists are white born and bred british, some are asian immigrants, some are black immigrants and many white eastern europeans. there doesn’t seem a main race that they target, it just random, and its got worse every year.
a solution might be for me to only employ one race and religion but’ then i’m the racist. People are interviewed’ and if suitable are offered jobs, no favours or prefs.

the main reason i voted out of the EU because of the numbers pouring in, if that doesn’t stop’ then we will never make any steps forward.
the comments from remainers saying their future and kids future’ is ruined by something they did not vote for.
thats ********. i remember before we joined, the country was better then’ it had substance and respect. many of us had it forced on us, and we endured 47 years of **** and being treated as such’ lost all of our industry and everything else, the had to let a lot people in, coming from terrible countries’ wanting some of our nice little island, that soldiers fought and died for, and what our ancestors worked so hard for’ to make it a great country.
now look at it’ an overcrowded angry racist ****hole.
the flakey negative remainers need to have a bit of faith and stop bleating like scared little lambs’ and have a bit of spirit like our ancestors did.
another thing i notice now, is the people bleating have interests in europe, some have property there, and some that voted don’t even like in the uk. they have just been getting fat too long on their europe ties, whilst the uk is getting worse by the day. shame on those people’ selfish *******s.
we’re out now, so all the little lambs need to get used to it’ or piss off to europe and create space for us that live here and believe in our country.

Fred: I have met you and really enjoyed your company. You were a great laugh for the week we fished together and Tat and I had a superb time. Funnily enough you showed no signs then of your hidden internet trolling abilities You kept them well hidden!

Just thank your lucky stars you are not a political reporter trying to get some semblance of truth rather than lies out of this government.

The Dom and Lee show has begun...Did you ever see such a nasty looking pair of enforcers (sorry : Advisors!) Free speech...Yer arse!

I am not so worried about Bexit (it's over...get used to it) as I am about the increasing Nazification of this great country of ours. Never have I know such hatred and division. I did European history 1850-1950 for my O Level and from what I recall (it was a long time ago) the attitudes and divisiveness in the UK today shows a remarkable similarity to Germany in 1933 onwards. It leaves a very nasty taste in the mouth. I'll hopefully be dead before the full impact of Brexit and 10 years of this buffoon will become clear. Thank God for that.

I'm genuinely angry that people like you have decided mine and my children's future.

Apparently Churchill once said that; "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."

In your case he certainly had a point.

I think the British could learn something from the French to be honest. Once it was obvious Brexit was a massive stitch up which would only benefit Rees-Mogg, Farage and the like, the French would have well and truly kicked off. None of this marching through London with witty and grammatically correct placards nonsense.

Can’t help thinking that during WW2 the vast majority of today’s thick, fat, knuckle-dragging morons who claim to be patriots would’ve been in Portsmouth jeering and screaming at British troops heading to Europe to fight to help foreigners. Bleedin’ do-gooders, eh?

Er..... I don't think so. Why should nearly half the population of the country own something they don't want or didn't vote for?
See, this is the difference. If I'm wrong, I'll be pleased to be wrong. If I'm right this will be a cluster**** of the highest order, I won't celebrate that.
Leavers philosophy seems to be happy to **** things up for the other half of the country. So when the people with a pigmentation problem don't go, when the schools are still full, when you can't see your gp or get a hospital appointment any quicker, when wages don't rise, when the trade deals which make the country better off, don't materialise, you and the others who voted for that own it. All of it.

Let's be clear.

There's no practical change after last night. It was a political milestone but Brexit is by no means 'done'

The process of it starts now and it won't be simple. It also won't be regular folk like us that do it, whether we come together or remain divided. It's in the hands of the Conservative party now. Not parliament but the conservative party as they have that huge majority.

All we can do is get on with our day to day and respond to the consequences

Good luck all

Grammar police, feel free to point out my mistakes’ i genuinely need pointers.
so brexit has definitely happened, or at least we’ve taken the first main step of it’ and i’m very happy for lots of reasons. those that are not happy’ i would just suggest’ to try and come to terms with it and give it a chance, we all have to whether we voted for it or not.
The uk started going down the toilet around 35 years ago’ so although very late in the day’ this is a step to try and get it turned into something respectable again.
My previous relatives’ like a lot of people gave their lives for our freedom’ i finally am starting to feel like i might be free again’ and belong to a country instead of a dustbin.

I wonder which country is the next to get out of the EU?

If anyone has watched “Travels in Euroland with Edd balls” it’s not looking very promising for the EU project, everybody and their dog has turned against it, even Edd who was a staunch supporter of the EU when he was a Labour MP admits it looks like it’s doomed.
It’s worth watching, bit of an eye opener- there’s literally “No Go Zones” in most German cities now, 90% rise’s in crime.

Now the grammar police are out, oh my god your argument for remain has impressed me so much i want to change my vote. Its just like the Labour party insult, be little and ostracise those with a different opinion will always turn them towards your point of view.

Hi Jon,

There you go again with the insults.
You really can't help yourself can you?
Is it because you think it's witty and amusing?
Constantly trying to ridicule someone who is polite to you seems to me to be smug narcissism.
I don't intend to waste any more of my time on this thread.

Ah.... the 'are' / 'our' mistake. Right up there with 'could of' / 'could have' ....

I've wasted so much red ink on those little mishaps. It's way more common than you might think. Like male pattern baldness and sense of humour failure...

So Brexit has got done. I don't feel any wealthier / more secure in my job / safer in my home / confident that there'll be a nurse available if I get ill.... Maybe project total and utter b*llocks overstated things....

Have seen some Brexit supporters on TV over the days news. More of the usual xenophobic pish and even some flag burning which was nice. Not necessarily a positive advert for our future but hey ho.

I thought there was a poignant moment during farage's final MEP rant when they simply turned his mic off so they didn't have to listen to him (if only that worked in everyday life). It summed up very simply and succinctly what we are now facing - those other countries don't have to listen to us if they don't like what we are saying now. Could make for an interesting few months of negotiation...

Blimey, I waited for a reply, gave up and logged out.

Then I came back, by chance, and you'd replied ... Grrreat .... the point is, the original question was ... what are the benefits of leaving the EU?

You've won ... surely you're knocking one out over Anne Widdecombe's speech by now?

Hi Jon,

What's the point in my posting to you?
All you do is post ridicule and insults..
How do you expect me to take you seriously?
If your intention is to just annoy me, then it falls on deaf ears, because abuse is meaningless nonsense and anyone with insight would see it says more about you than it does of me.

I'm sorry....

Not understanding the difference between 'are' and 'our' is perfectly normal and certainly not a sign that anyone is thick.

Butterbean just happened to be too busy to reply to me in the last half hour (maybe nanny was ready with his special tea Towel to mop up the Eton Mess, come the hour).

Hi Wayne,

As you can see, Jon's post below has just confirmed my earlier post in that, they don't answer direct questions and just post insults.
You would think that he would realise that replying with sarcasm and insults is meaningless and destroys any credibility he might have and that of his opinions.
It seems to me, the further left these people go, so does their intellect diminish in direct proportion.
If you follow US politics, you see this trend with the more leftist democrats.

Mate ... I've spent 3 years telling fellow libtards not to mock the thick or the racist ... then you demonstrate that you don't know the difference between 'our' and 'are'.
I'm really sorry, but anything you say after that is worthless....

Bong ... bong ... WHERE'S BIG BEN????????

(Reuters) - PSA Group's (PEUP.PA) will build a battery cell factory in Kaiserslautern, Opel Chief Executive Michael Lohscheller said on Thursday, in a step which creates 2,000 jobs at a site which is heavily dependent on making parts for combustion-engined cars.

"We will build the largest plant for battery cells in Germany in Kaiserslautern. Together with our Partner Saft we are making an investment in the billion euro range that will lead to the creation of 2,000 jobs. By doing so, we are building a true giga factory," Lohscheller said in a statement on Thursday.

Cutting out the inefficient and investing billions to create new better jobs for the future economy I'd say.

Why anyone would agree to their country being, in part, controlled by a foreign power that doesn't have their best interests at heart is beyond my comprehension.

Good luck with Donald!

How are the conspiracy theories going ? The Jews paying for Muslims to over run the native white man wasn't it ... something like that? I expect it's coronavirus is a EU plot by now, eh? Nice to see your carer has let you use the internet machine again!

Edit: Butterbean - you've never 'tried to debate' any remainers. All you've ever done on this thread is post a load of cobblers then disappear for months on end (until your mum tells you the thread had slipped off the first page, I imagine).

Hi Wayne,

Way back on this thread, I tried to debate a couple of remainers, because I was genuinely baffled as to what advantages they saw in remaining as apposed to leaving, but they ignored my questions and treated me to their repertoire of sarcasm and insults.
I would have thought that, if they had any overwhelming reasons to remain they would have voiced them, so you have to conclude that they don't have any.
Why anyone would agree to their country being, in part, controlled by a foreign power that doesn't have their best interests at heart is beyond my comprehension.

BB.

I see Opel just announced a €2 billion investment in it's Kaiserslautern plant Germany for a Giga battery factory. Thousands of new cutting edge jobs. It's sister Vauxhall plant in the UK missed out and is not assigned new investment, and has halved it's workforce since the Brexit vote.
Pull together my Arris, you voted for it, you own it get delivering numpties.

Stock up today chaps, remember there will be no medicines and food in the shops tomorrow!

At least its a step forward trade talks can begin Monday in earnest, Sorry we cant because the EU don't want to start until March.

The worse thing i heard on LBC this morning was an older woman worried that the NHS will now be brought by the USA and no medicines will be available........ Project Fear has a lot to answer for!

Cobblers.

Remain voters are going to work, doing their jobs and paying their taxes. Don't pretend that if they all started waving little flags and playing Land Of Hope and Glory on kazoos tomorrow night anything would change.

Brexit and its negative consequences are entirely the responsibility of the politicians who sold it, and the folk who voted for it. Similarly, if it's a roaring success, it'll be thanks to them.

All this 'now we need to pull together' crap is just leave trying to silence folk pointing out how 'project fear' is becoming reality.

It's happening, you wanted it, the least you can do is grow a pair and accept responsibility for the results.

Jim: You'll be fine, mate. Nothing will happen on or before 2nd Feb. As for the EHIC, nothing changes until the end of 2020. It will be valid until then and you will be able to claim all but 20% of your medical expenses. You will be able to claim that 20% from your travel insurance provider...One thing...make sure your card has not expired. They are only issued for a defined period. Renewal is easy-peasy and quick.

BTW, just because you have an EHIC does NOT mean that you don't need travel/medical insurance when travellin to the EU...unless you can afford to drop 20% of, say, a €20,000 charge.

Just to give an example...Tats broken bone in October 2019 would have cost us over three grand. However, because we have Travel/Medical insurance as well as an EHIC it cost us zilch.

It is thought (hoped) that some kind of reciprocal agreement will be reached with the EU during the negotiations.

My understanding is that because there's an agreement deal then all is the same during the transition period til the end of 2020

If there's a change and the EU reject the agreement meaning it's a no deal Brexit then nothing is invalid immediately as there's a legislation period until they agree new terms.

Bit vague I know. I'd be getting extra travel insurance on top of my ehic if it was me.

Tommy Robinson and his crusade against grooming gangs , great cause , one i stood for , i would have a little more respect for him if he held the Tory government and Theresa May to account instead of trying to join them for her loosing over 100 documents relating to high level pedophilia ! and the now forgotten 3 inquiries into the same thing , it's a fu##in joke ! Tommy has been a useful tool and well used !

He’s intelligent enough to let his puppets and sheep do the dirty work and not incriminate himself as a fascist thug
I think even Corbyn would gain more votes! Because his minions are the most vocal doesn’t make them more numerous
To be fair he has a black mate and had 4 Muslims at his wedding

Go into the grocery store and you'll see someone with a cart piled high with high end foods and pay for it with food stamps.
But they always seem to have money for beer and cigarettes.

Used to work in a brewery on shifts, four days on, four days in the garden pissed lol

Had a job and pretended to pull his back, told me, on the sick for months, built a massive deck at the back of his house all that summer while he was off, put a claim in and got paid out the lazy **** and left not long after

Got another job, was there around 12 months, on the sick again all summer, stress. Guess what, still not been back to work, he has put a claim in against them too ffs

His mrs is a teacher, worked in around 3 different schools to my knowing, when she was at work, off all the time sat in the garden with him!

some, not all eastern europeans admit to working for cash over here’ and claiming benefit which goes straight back to their country. i asked some if they think its right doing this’ most of them say why not’ your country makes the rules’ and we declare some of the cash. i suppose you can’t blame them’ they must feel like they are in disney land when they arrive.

That’s a word ain’t it, human rights. Our countries human rights you mean, some have virtually none!

It’s a common joke round our way, there is a massive council estate nearby and virtually every house has a Sky dish on the wall, probably a must if your sat on your arse everyday. Thats probably £90 a month. I did not have Sky for a long time because I could not afford it or should I say justify it nor had the desire to pay out £90 for TV. Now that’s a pure luxury for me...

Once in the local post office and I refrained from smashing this morons face through the glass panel several times as he ripped verbal abuse into the lady behind the counter because his real words “his money had not come” he was referring to his gyro check, his money. I felt like paying him straight out of my pocket in sympathy, ****

The government should run the employment agency in alignment with benefit claims. You have not got a job? We will give you one, how’s that. You don’t want the job, no benefits then.





Another one I cannot grasp. Stop paying out cash. Housing and food vouchers should be the way forward.
Probably against their human rights

I accept their are a few genuine cases of hardship but I do wonder how many plead poverty but somehow manage to keep up their Sky subscription

Don’t get me going with employment agency’s. I’ve dealt with a few over the years. They make me laugh with their fancy titles, chairman and director of the board at xyz agency and he / she is only 20 lol. If it was down to me I would put these out of business today, exploiting people big time, just creaming money of their wages, bang out of order. Still it’s another one the government can let go of, keeps the unemployment figures down. The government should run the employment agency in alignment with benefit claims. You have not got a job? We will give you one, how’s that. You don’t want the job, no benefits then.

Another one I cannot grasp. Stop paying out cash. Housing and food vouchers should be the way forward. You look at the rest of the world and it is unbelievable what we do. It’s a free for all and then we wonder why they are queuing up to get in ffs

That's twice you've used the word ponces now. Do you care to explain what you mean by it as I know that there are regional variations in slang.

Where I come from its an offensive derogatory homophobic term that probably shouldn't be in use on the forum

Large numbers of people sometimes do stupid **** with no benefit for some reason, like the near on 4 million who voted Lib Dem in the GE
Most of my political input is tongue in cheek or wildly exaggerated as you can probably see, but am not a huge fan of unions, nationalising of services or the handout culture; so can’t support labour.
I also have nothing of note to conserve, but support my local Conservative mp because he’s a committed, honest bloke and the alternatives scare me to death

i think your comment about having a businessman in charge is more than valid scozza. i have friends and some family in the usa. they were in serious money trouble over there pre trump. So a billionaire successful business man was elected. he promised he would return their industry and sort out the failing economy’ which he did’ he was as good as his word’ and they have never had it so good over there’ yet there is so much hate for him from certain people, usually coincidentally from wealthy people who had money pre trump. now they’ or rather some want him out, they should be careful what they wish for if you ask me.
i think no matter how great a president or prime minister is’ there will be negativity from some’ it is what it is.
Boris acts the clown and in by no means perfect but’ he is very patriotic and has not had an easy road trying to deliver what we voted for. he’s kept his composure even in the face of blatant corruption’ and finally got his result. i’ll always respect him for that at least.

My sister in law is a nurse on an NHS contract. She refuses overtime when asked by the NHS but is registered with an agency. Accepts the overtime from the agency and works in the same ward when doing so for more money from the agency. Who's really paying for the agencies profit, and her extra money?? Get rid of the third mouth in the wages chain for me. It's unnecessary and takes our money away from where it's ment. Free market Tory government policy won't stop it, only encourage.

Bring back the workhouses and get those bloody kids back up the chimneys
Though that would suit the unions, who currently just skim a living off people that are more often than not completely in the wrong when they require help, some cases I’ve heard about from a union rep I know personally are laughable. The laws and regulations now in place protect workers and make Unions almost superfluous, H&S is so prevalent in the workplace any injuries are probably the result of stupidity and should fall on the employee rather than employer. I know various employers and it’s such a ball ache I wonder why some bother, you can’t even sack somebody that can’t do the job properly in some cases!?
As a silver lining everybody should feel at ease knowing should they fall on hard times or become ill we live in a country that will care for and support them. Problem with that is people will take advantage and some never feel it necessary to do a days work in their lives, but name me an act of kindness or courtesy that some degenerate won’t take advantage of...
The recurring theme will not be that those people are white, black, brown, European, Asian, African or anything else; they are simply ****s

We are in a completely different economic environment now and I’m sorry but unless they are disabled and cannot work they need to get people contributing for their payment, make the work worthwhile again otherwise we going to have a majority sat of their ****ing arses, we cannot sustain that, at all

i’m not blaming europe for everything but’ i certainly believe our membership is causing a lot of problems that cannot be rectified’ unless we either leave or are at the very least given back our own laws’ border control and fishing rights for example, plus quite a few other points that make us as members left with our hands tied.
brexit was inevitable from many year back’ one of the main reasons was always peoples concern about immigration. Our country is just way to small for all the hoards pouring in’ it’s plain to see and has been for a long time.
Immigration is a double edged sword’ yes many migrants bring something to the table and do the work many born and bred brits refuse or can’t do. the other side of it is’ those extra people have to be housed, kids schooled, they drive cars and will use the nhs. a vicious circle if you like. i was once in a truck stop in the states’ i got talking to some truck drivers’ they were all very racist and moaning about the amount of migrants flooding in. i explained to them it was the same here but’ the big difference is’ they have the room for the extra people’ we do not. they all agreed. Britain is a small island and england a tiny country’ we cannot sustain the numbers’ it really is that simple. it doesn’t need to be turned into a racist or bigotry scenario, it all about the numbers. it’s like a bucket being topped up with water’ at some stage it will overflow. where should the line be drawn?

I recently spent a few hours at Medway emergency centre and watched the staff nurse chat with nearly everyone that passed, be they cleaner, porter,ambulance, doctor...none of it was work related as I could hear and eventually after what seemed an eternity she picked a clipboard up and called my name ... but this wasn’t an isolated incident, I witnessed pockets of chatting staff everywhere, I’m not saying they shouldn’t talk to each other but I’m bloody certain if they reeled it in a bit then people would be seen a lot quicker.... imagine being in the queue at Tesco’s and all the cashiers are have a good old chin wag, you’d soon get a back log

Too much management who really only succeed in managing to run the trust which employs them into the ground, then whoever is in government gets the blame.
There were umpteen people behind the scenes clearly on very good money that contributed absolutely nothing.. like the health and safety guy who we had to bring up to speed daily with regs he didn’t understand and actually broke his arm last week

on the NHS...

A friend of a friend is a qualified nurse. She quit her job in an NHS hospital because of the pay and conditions etc. And decided to do agency nursing. She now goes back in to the same hospital on a hugely increased rate of pay doing the same work as before as there's a need for qualified nurses... if she works bank holidays etc the rate is even higher.

I'm not condoning or criticising her actions, simply making the observation as she's obviously not the only one doing it.

Shows what a mess the organisation is in.

People should also, before blaming the EU or government, take a look at themselves.
Overcrowding of roads could be eased by lazy ****s walking the 1/2 mile journey to drop little Tarquin at school or picking up an avocado and almond milk from Waitrose.
Having worked in an nhs hospital the last few weeks I can safely say without immigration there would simply be a building full of ageing white brits with nobody to provide care except a few who believe work ethic means turning up, but not actually doing anything. The money I was on also shows they are so out of touch with reality it’s embarrassing.... I was probably on a better daily rate than some doctors
Maybe it’s different elsewhere in the country but London would be lost without immigrants and we should be thankful somebody will do the jobs which keep the country ticking, because most brits somehow feel that they are above modestly paid menial jobs; even though they are probably thick as ****, lazy and unskilled.
Except those with a nonsense degree which cost the tax payer a fortune that work in McDonald’s or Tesco.

There's where the main differences between remain and leave voting people are I believe Mook.
You blame the EU for where we are, many others blame the government's we've had over the last 50 years. Blaming the EU totally was always like an angler blaming his bait for blanking, a cop out in my view.

well again it’s opinion based but’ i think there has been multiple times and eras of britain being great’ for the people and governments, and other countries that benefited from such times.
the end of the two world wars come to mind mainly because us and our allies restored peace again. as mentioned before’ some of the european countries were very grateful to us at the time for liberating them’ and stopping their countries becoming german states. it was soon forgotten though it seems.
another era when the industrial revolution was in full swing’ was a time when we prospered and had things to offer.
the forming of the british empire could also be seen as great by many’ but i have mixed feelings on that. as britain often poked their nose in where it wasn’t wanted. also many foreigners were handed british passports to soften the blow. this prompted some of the early immigration problems too.
a time when britain was great for me’ was when i was a boy and then growing up. it wasn’t overcrowded then, traffic jams were rare’ plenty of open space and countryside. enough jobs for the population’ nhs was coping well’ plenty of schools.
always saw police walking the beat’ clipping us round the ear for swearing or scrumping. stabbing and shootings were a rare occurrence. usually a single stabbing would make tv news and be shock horror. drugs were out there’ not like now though. People’s opinions were not stifled either. there was terrorism tbh’ but not like we see now’ and it was because we poked our noses into others business.

whenever the eras were when britain was great’ it wasn’t great all the time’ but overall better than current times. the real problem is overcrowding, it causes most of the issues that people moan about today. there is no balance, there are little countries like ours and other parts of europe’ that have strived to get civilised and successful’ then are preyed on by immigrants that are legal and illegal. then somewhere huge like australia with hardly anybody living there.
Immigration should have stopped here a long time ago’ but it didn’t’ this was a big factor in the start of brexit.
i don’t really care what colour or race people are’ or where they come from i just don’t think we want any more here’ and getting rid of the illegals would be a start. some will leave anyway once we leave europe according to research’ but there will need to be proper control over immigration until the numbers are down to a level where everybody can breath a bit and have a better quality of life.
there still many that believe in britain’ and believe we are trying to make it great again without being a puppet for brussels. i’m one of those people.

Same Scozza
My wife worked for a US private equity firm based out of San Francisco for the last 4 years until recently. She looked after the Middle East, Europe and Africa divisions of the billion$ company. The PE owned many famous and old British brands and site's in Staffordshire, Cambridge and London. The London site was closed the Staffordshire site has halved in employees and all manufacturing outsourced to the far East. The Cambridge site has such a high turnover of staff because of wage and conditions cuts it's ridiculous. All new pipe line product development halted and sent to the US.
The PE has made a fortune, all profits San Francisco bound instead of UK bound,so did the shareholders that sold the companies to the PE intially.
Merry Christmas Cobham employees from the UK government of feral free marketeers no matter what the cost

It wasn't kept secret, the sale was given approval in July, its a global business with employees all over the world and several sites with some owned and some leased so it takes time to draw up a contract of sale.

Can't for the life of me think why they'd keep the approval of a sale of MOD related business to an American company a little secret until after the election.....

The NHS will be next, said it for a long time, everything that was great will eventually be destroyed

It’s a simple one for me and it’s no different to a business. Theres the outlay but the returns on the investment are not there, we cannot sustain the current situation and we have been like this for a long time. Time for a radical change to get this country back on track. Too many people trying to milk it and not enough contribution

There’s one, didn’t that **** Thatcher start this, privatisation or a driving advocate of it

That particular buy out I’d imagine was to appease shareholders as much as anything else.
Conflict is big business and the US is a world leader in both business and conflict, so it makes sense to me.
If the next major conflict turns nuclear then jet refuelling will be as much use as a d!ck flavoured lollipop

In reply to Post #1000
well , this is not what i have been led to believe by this Tory lot led by Bulls##t Boris

why are our press and media not holding him to account ?

Legal disputes and other matters
Provisions for these issues are also unchanged from the original withdrawal deal.

Although a joint UK-EU committee and an arbitration panel would try to resolve disputes, the UK would remain under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) during the transition. Afterwards, its rulings would no longer have direct effect in the UK but it would retain influence.

One contentious issue — that of fishing rights — is left to be dealt with on another day. The agreement says the EU and UK should do their best to strike a separate deal on access to UK waters for EU fishing boats.

A protocol on Gibraltar — the British territory on the southern tip of Spain — seeks to ensure in particular that citizens’ rights are respected. Another, on Cyprus, aims to preserve the current situation — keeping the British military base in the EU’s customs territory.

In reply to Post #999
A layman’s summary of the EU’s new ‘UK colonisation treaty’ agreed by the PM yesterday
1. Parliament will not be sovereign - UK still to be governed by existing and new laws of the ECJ – a foreign court – and
with no say over these laws. [WA articles 4, 87, 89 and 127, PD para 131]
2. Demands payment of a sum to be decided by the EU - Minimum £39 billion but this is likely to increase and the
EU decides the final sum. This must be paid BEFORE any trade deal is agreed. [WA articles 138-144, and 152-155]
3. No trade deal with EU – Not included as this is just a divorce treaty. Any EU trade deal must ensure “a level playing field
for open and fair competition” and “deep regulatory and customs cooperation”. This will make it difficult for the UK to reduce
non-tariff barriers in trade deals with USA, Australia, China, etc. [PD paras 17 & 21]
4. Prevents independent tax policy - Political Declaration still obliges UK to adopt a future relationship which will impose
EU State Aid rules and “relevant tax matters” on the UK. EU specifically intends to curb UK’s ability to have “harmful tax
practices”. Withdrawal Treaty also applies EU law to UK during transition period - allowing EU to sue UK, including infringement
proceedings for as yet unidentified breaches of State Aid rules and billions in VAT on commodity derivative transactions dating
back to 1970s. [PD para 77, WA articles 86, 93, 127].
5. Restricts independent foreign policy - UK to be bound by international agreements concluded by the EU despite
having no influence in their negotiation during the transition period and must “refrain, during the transition period, from any
action... which is likely to be prejudicial” to the interests of the EU. [Articles 129(3) and (6)].
6. Prevents independent military action – UK permanently stopped from taking “any action likely to conflict with or
impede” EU’s foreign policies. Critical parts of section on foreign policy and security are not reciprocal, eg future relationship will
not “prejudice the decision-making autonomy of the EU” but no such language for UK – only permitted to “maintain the right
to determine how [to respond] to any invitation to participate in operations or missions”. Also, parties “agree to consider”
security collaboration in European Defence Agency, European Defence Fund, and PESCO “to the extent possible under [EU law]”
which is prescriptive (not permissive) obligation. Despite paying for European Defence Agency during transition, British troops in
EU battlegroups will not be led by British staff officers. [WA articles 129(6-7) and 156-157 and PD paras 99, 102(c)]
7. Controls UK fishing – Common Fisheries Policy continues in UK waters during transition (which can be extended) but UK
will have no say in implementation or enforcement. After transition, Political Declaration requires “cooperation on... regulation
of fisheries, in a non-discriminatory manner” - code for continuing current arrangements for EU access to UK waters. Any trade
deal to “ensure service providers and investors are treated in a non-discriminatory manner, including with regard to
establishment” - prevents UK protecting quotas from EU purchase. [PD paras 29 and 72]
8. Replaces one EU Commission with another - New body established with “powers equivalent to those of the
European Commission”. UK must accept exclusive jurisdiction of Arbitration Panel and judgments of ECJ. Grants EU officials
criminal immunity and exemption from UK tax. Imposes gagging order on UK which must keep all EU information confidential
but EU can use UK information as it sees fit. [WA articles 74, 101, 104-5, 106-116, 159, 168, 174]
9. Leaves UK with €500bn liabilities from EU Investment Bank but no profits - No rights to past and future
profits made from UK investment in EIB, no rights to UK share of assets of EIB, yet UK remaining liable for risk of up to €500bn of
guarantees. UK must let EU bid for UK public projects at least during transition. [WA articles 34, 75-78, 127, 143, 147, 150].
10. EU colonisation - makes UK bystander in laws that govern it - UK permitted to send civil servant to Brussels to observe
EU passing laws designed to disadvantage UK economy during transition which might last many years. EU could regulate
London’s huge foreign exchange markets, impose financial transaction tax that would be collected at UK expense by HMRC but
sent to foreign governments. [WA article 34]

Those mentioned in the first sentence, it's their choice.
The second sentence will be agreed by everyone Mook.
One of the UK's best aerospace/ defence companies, Cobham, was allowed to be sold last night at 10pm by Boris. Strange time to announce it but he probably has reasons.....To a US private equity company against the wishes and advice of the British founders and Trade Unions.
So much for taking back control, looks like Britain is still for sale to me under this government.
Wayne, yeah right yeah...

Ralphy’ scozza and wayne, i have the same views as you people.
i really just want my country to have some backbone’ dignity and to resemble something nearer to when it actually was great britain.
regardless of peoples views, we’re leaving europe’ i never wanted to join, so its time everybody got used to the idea. we need a bit of faith and belief. it may be a bumpy ride, it may not but’ we will all make the journey and hopefully it will be or the better. some are to young to remember when we had our own rules and laws’ and did things our way. it was a lot better then ‘opinion’ and although we might not get back that greatness’ who knows’ at least we’re giving it a shot and standing on our own feet again.

whatever your views, have a great christmas all

Agreed but I don’t think there is many contracts out there that offer very little protection or exploit workers. I mean the EU working directive for instance that’s a great idea but most people I know signed out of it because they want to work more hours.

EU is slightly concerned by all accounts as we are about to become competition to them hence why they want a similar alignment to the rules and regs they already have. This will be a big factor in the trade negotiations I think.

Edit - Ocelot it was a tongue in cheek initial comment!

Labour may have brought them in but nobody has gotten rid of them in the last 9 years..

At least we agree that they are Crap.

As for not taking a job if you don't agree with everything in a contract, I'm afraid that decision is a luxury all can afford. We should be pushing for a system that doesn't have contracts that exploit people shouldn't we?

Zero hour contracts are crap but look who brought them in......labour! Trade unions are exactly what you say and offer no solutions to workers other than striking. When you sign a work contract you should read it to be fair, anything you don’t like you ask to be amended or don’t take the job.

My understanding of child refugees is the parents are already here and now want there children brought over. That doesn’t sit well with me at all. Another point, I wish the government would take the stance of no benefits of any kind are available in this country unless you have worked here for a minimum of 3 years and even then the handout is only equivalent of NI contributions in that time. This should apply to all not just people from the EU!

Hmmmm

I'm definitely no fan of the hard left trade unionists who use strike action to hold people to ransom but I can't agree with disbanding them all and leaving many honest hard working people without some forms of protection in employment. Look at the way zero hours contracts are exploited.

As for refugee children it doesn't sit right with me that they become victims of what looks to be an inhumane approach. There are lots of reasons why a child could end up separated from family (parents could have been killed and they are looking to find other family as an example ). The key thing for me is that it's not the fault of the child.

As I said already I'm hoping for positive change but I'm not overly impressed with a start that looks a bit like more broken promises.

Are we not getting carried away here?

I would close the door to all immigrants today, this absolute second. Does that make me a racist because I’m sick to death of people milking this country ****ing dry!

I probably sound selfish here but I don’t give a ****. I am sick of trying to be politically correct as a few other million I suspect. We need to get this country back on track and this is just one problem of many that needs to be addressed, quickly, that’s a fact.

As does all the lazy ****s who have no intention of working

As does the NHS, people milking it dry

Unfortunately not always.

No surprise that the withdrawal deal went through yesterday. I was a bit surprised at the numbers on both sides though. Seems that quite a few mp's didn't vote on it at all. Given the importance and the fact that they had one job to do yesterday it's not the most auspicious start....

What's your thinking on boris removing the protection of workers rights and child refugees elements?

Hitler supported the idea of a pure bred society at the expense of racial diversity. This is what is known as a fact.

Nigel farage knows everything about immigration. This is factually incorrect.

Christmas is all about being able to freely make statements that are nasty and divisive. This is an opinion. Not a very intelligent opinion nor one that i would support in any way, but an opinion nonetheless.

Mook you seem to be struggling with the basic concept so here is some help...

'The fact is described as the statement that can be verified or proved to be true. Opinion is an expression of judgment or belief about something. Fact relies on observation or research while opinion is based on assumption. The fact is an objective reality whereas opinion is a subjective statement.'

Let's leave Mexican food for now and use your examples, that are clearly bothering you.

I was giving examples’ of what people get labelled with if they air certain views and opinions.
i’ll give you an example, i do not like rapists or paedos or other forms of similar scum. is there a term or phobia name for people like me’ that can’t tolerate these scum or what they do. or is it i happen to have my opinion on them?
i think once these filth are convicted, they should be taken downstairs, killed and incinerated. Is there a name for this opinion too.
i’m not over keen on mexican food, does this make me a food racist?

thanks for giving me permission to crack on too, i think you look forward to my posts maybe

No-one on here is stopping you from expressing your opinions Mook. Crack on and get the ones out there that you believe are not sexiest, racist, ageist, homophobic etc that you're moaning about getting labeled as in our society.

Nobody can make predictions without evidence/facts to go on – Brexit has never happened before; how the hell could anyone make a prediction?


E.G. Look at all the “Pie in the Sky” predictions that were made about the referendum if people voted to leave, all proved to be false, wrong, concocted via a broken crystal ball...............

It started a long time before that, in fact about 31/2” years ago after a Referendum vote did not go the political correct way a few where convinced it would.

The same few still appear to be living in alternative imaginary universe, and probably still will even after today’s vote in parliament.

I'm hoping that Boris steps up to the plate and hope a lot of remainers will be pleasantly surprised and expect a lot of leavers will be somewhat disappointed. Noted that the Tories have already stated any minimum wage rise will be dependent on the economy and I expect that to become a common theme with a number of promises.

Honestly I reckon most people will just carry on trying to get through their day to day. Although I can't speak for all and definitely not for labour voters

I do think that when - not if - things take a downturn there will be a lot of 'I told you so' but to be fair that's always the way with politics. You can't keep all the people happy all the time.

I'm hoping for some positive change regarding the environment and genuinely hope that the nasty and devisive politics of the brexit years will shift and become more productive. It is of course dependent on those who now have a large majority stepping up and delivering. Johnson has made a lot of noise about delivering for those who have switched their vote but he's not the best at keeping promises so far.... we can only hope eh?

As for not having any control over things... I'm afraid that's all of us for the foreseeable near future.

At least now there'll only be one place to lay the blame...

well you need to prepare for any eventuality, none of us really know how it will go’ but we have the faith and confidence in our country and pm, to get us back on our own two feet. like we used to be before being whored out to europe.
manning had opinions possibly different to yours, also an admirer of some of the tory party. you might also be somebody who does not like different views and opinions to your own’ like the person in this debate who calls people trolls or clowns who don’t share his views. you have to have faith in the country and the man in charge, who got a big majority vote.

Labour and JC monumentally ****ed up, took the north for granted and believed what's good for Islington is good for the country!

Now the MP whores are spouting who is the more working class and in touch with the North are a "Sir" and "Lady" to win the leadership race.

Austerity was brought about because 13yrs of a labour government had made the UK debt rise from £350 billion to £950 billion. Add the banking crisis and the fact they did **** all about meant the UK REALLY WAS IN THE ****!

THE HAVE NEARLY TRIPLED THE UK DEBT , WAKE UP , ALL THIS AUSTERITY , FOR WHAT ???? WAKE UP ! HOLD THEM TO ACCOUNT !

I was brought up to pay off your debts before taking out more debt!

Jezza had the chance to hold them to account but his baggage with terrorists, his baggage over anti-Semitism and his left wing student political dogma didn't connect with the public. His overflowing money tree and pressies for all was unbelievable. Still the Labour party won't apologise and admitted they got it fundamentally wrong just breadcrumbs of it was Brexit, the media and the weather!

I have even seen them claiming they won on policies but lost on votes

So WAKE UP AND HOLD LABOUR TO ACCOUNT for being complete knobs!.

old people have paid in yes but the unfortunate reality is that the money they paid doesn't just sit in a pot waiting for them. One of the issues we face is that people are living longer and we have an ageing population, we need workers paying into the tax system now to support them. Ironically you will find that a huge proportion of those working in the care sector looking after our elderly, and nurses in our hospitals are immigrant workers!

Most old people have paid their dues and paid for the spongers, and entitled to their retirement. I know people with five or six kids, they work their asses off and pay more tax’ again some of it for the spongers, than a lot of people earn, all doing their bit. not sure what your problem is, if somebody doesn’t share your view they are a clown?

Your way out there Mal – Old people have paid into the system ALL THEIR WORKING LIVES they really have had the piss taken out of them!
What the hell did they pay NI for on average 49 years of their working life for? The NHS is a basket case, it’s like a Pint Pot trying to fit a gallon.


At least you and I Scozza still have a sense of humour, but we should show at bit of respect at this sad time-

RIP Labour Party


RIP Liberal Party


RIP Brexit Party (Job Done!)

I recently built an extension for a couple , she was at home every day and i spoke to her about politics , regularly ! she was in her early sixties and her views are the same as what i see here , naive nationalism , propagated by a right wing government who blame , usually a minority group for their failures , a compliant press pumps out the narrative ,the very people who end up suffering the most , are , sadly the people who lap it up , and vote completely against their self interests in the misguided belief that the very people , who are the reason for 9 years of failed austerity and 3 and 1/2 years of failed brexit negotiations are going to suddenly "be on their side " sorry but i just can't believe that you have lapped it up ! do your eyes and ears not work !have you not been paying attention to the closure of our libraries , the lack of investment , everywhere ! stagnant wages while the richest multiply their wealth whilst some of them pay less tax than the average man in the street .
Well , it was Labours fault , WRONG ! it was a worldwide recession brought about by a corrupt deregulated banking system ,starting under Thatchers , and we bailed them out !
My house was burgled whilst we were in , there was video footage of the man , the police said that there was nobody available , we never saw a copper , too this day !
And if anyone thinks that the nhs isn't being privatized just watch John Pilgers documentary on ITV last night , there was a blockade on it being shown prior to the election , one of our last decent journalists !

If Labour had been in power for the last nine years , we would never hear the end of the failures of the last nine years !

THE HAVE NEARLY TRIPLED THE UK DEBT , WAKE UP , ALL THIS AUSTERITY , FOR WHAT ???? WAKE UP ! HOLD THEM TO ACCOUNT !

Ponces and spongers?

Great wise words.

Anyone else you want to get rid of? I mean old people don't offer much do they? Milking the economy dry with their pensions. And don't even get me started on those who claim disability benefits with their special parking privileges and government handouts. And those stupid breeders with loads of kids. We're already overcrowded. One child each is enough right?

Get rid of anyone foreign? you said that not me. i’ll be happy to see the numbers and overcrowding reduced’ regardless of their nationality, including the lazy ******* uk born and bred spongers amongst us.
the people that cannot accept democracy, some of them born and bred here, telling everybody how great europe is for us, why don’t they **** off to europe too. then they are happy and we have more space.
Illegal immigrants, get rid of those piss taking leaches too.
then i might be able to drive to work like the old days without sitting in constant traffic, and watching the countryside shrink, because of all the houses being built for the ponces and spongers.

Mmmmmmm, makes a lot of sense to me

I don’t think joining the EU was like flicking a switch, we have had a stream of immigrants for a long time. Black Africans, Asians, gone on for years

I agree though. STOP is the word for me, let’s make Britain great again, I’m all for it

Closing the gates would be nice but unlikely to happen. It’s the contribution to our ecomany what we need to address and that’s with our own dole wallers too!

Contribute nothing, don’t expect nothing, not even Sky TV

What utter xenophobic bull****

So only true purebred nationals offer anything to a society and we should seek to get rid of anyone foreign? Sounds vaguely familiar to me.

Spot on

Ps, everybody and their dog is saying exactly the same as you, as the total utter annihilation of the Labour shows.

In your opinion you forgot to say.
There are way too many people in the country now, and many other developed countries too. so the not so developed countries occupants want in, and they have been getting in for many years in droves. Despite past governments telling us they’ll curb immigration, because we are in europe they can’t.
So, all the extra people put a big strain on everything in our little country. Schools, hospitals/nhs, housing, overcrowded roads, and crime to name a few, i nearly forgot terrorists too.
So dropping europe is the first step to slowing down the rot, then when we are rid of it, we can take steps to try and make sure our countries can get back to something decent. Like when we had things to offer the world, and had our respect and dignity.

My relatives fought and died in wars like many, for our future, security and a decent life. Some of the countries in europe, would all be speaking german now if not for us and the americans. then once the wars were over and people were getting somewhere, some **** thought it a good idea to join up with many of the people we had so much conflict with. those countries then proceeded to treat us and our country as a dustbin.
we have nothing left to offer the world now except sponging our welfare and nhs system which they accept openly. many foreigners plan their vacation here at the time their babies are due, amongst other things.
f**k europe, and if people want it so much’ they should f**k off over there and make room for true british people’ with british value. my opinions maybe not yours, maybe you are an immigrant or a remainer, i don’t care. i voted out and one day we will be out, that’s all i care about right now.

There's so much nonsense in that post Mook, let's take the NHS first, when did these problems start, when we joined the EU? when a particular country joined?

The reason Brexit was 'stifled' is because there was never a plan to actually leave, no idea what it would look like and most of the house were very aware of how damaging no deal would be and wanted to ensure any deal was actually scrutinised and that at least some assessment was done on its likely impacts!

My father who's in his mid 70's has been suffering for several years with bone cancer and recently started to see lesions on his upper arms. That started causing him great pain in his shoulders. His Dr referred him to a rheumatoid specialist, 69 week's wait for his appointment....
Better get cracking on Bozo
